We loved it and I would've rated 5 stars if it weren't for the guy at the ticket booth who was super rude when returing us change.
"What kind of idiot goes to Colombia?” was a common question I heard from friends when I told them I was planning a trip to Colombia. My pre-meditated response was always the same, “Mel Gibson, for one.” I would then continue naming a few more, “Madonna, Marc Anthony, Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Cypress Hill and The Cure.” Not convinced, I would explain about Colombia’s year-round temperate climate, the beaches, the ability for men to wear clear nail polish on their nails without fear of being ridiculed in public, the lack of tipping in restaurants, the affordable plastic surgery, and, how most of the money changers in the cities are now starting to run a cleaner business model. “A white guy like you will fit in just fine down there. You might want to spray paint your Nike shoes black before going down there,” is their follow-up response. Oh, well. Choice titles for my non-fiction Colombian dating book ranged all over the board. At the more desperate hours, I brainstormed titles that people might most easily recognize (The Lion, The Witch and Pablo). Then, while suffering from lack of financial security, I would choose more sinister titles like, The Sometimes Legal Things We Do For Money in South America, Colombia’s Creepy Book of The Month, The Art of Identity-Crafting In An Attempt To Impress Colombian Women and finally, A Lawsuit Waiting To Happen In Colombia. When in more jovial times, I would brainstorm more giddy, off-the-wall titles - How To Be Famous in Colombia Without Going to Prison, What Doesn’t Work in Other Countries Is Colombia’s Bread and Butter, Mobilizing Staggering Talent in the Andean Highlands of Colombia, Don’t Tell My Mom I’m An English Teacher In Colombia (She Thinks I Work In An Albanian Toothpaste Factory), Chocolate Binges And Mood Swings South of Tijuana, The Motorcycle Diaries of an Internet Romeo, and finally, Just Because I’m In Colombia…Doesn’t Mean I Can’t Dress Like a Puerto Rican. At my most flustered and anxious times I would literally pick out titles based on random sentences I read out of other books. These titles included, I’m Not an Idiot (I’m an Actor, Writer and Teacher in Colombia), Trying To Impress Colombians Who Are Richer And Smarter Than me, I Studied Psychology and This Isn’t a Hijacking Situation, Watching a White Boy Stumble Through Life Makes Most Colombians Grin, and The Difference Between Tourists and Travelers. *** Please view/share the book "48,000,000 Colombians Can't Be Wrong," by Brian Ward on Amazon.
One of the most beautiful places in Bogotá, for its historical, architectural and cultural value. Site recommended when visiting the capital.
Didn't find it as good as many of Bogota's other museums. Collections is disjointed almost haphazardly put together
very cool and beautiful! On the back of the museum, there is one of the best asian restaurants that I have been called WOK. Good price and amazing food!
Excellent place, perfect to share a good time with family and friends sharing new experiences. And close its there are too much kind of people, near is the national park, the downtown and the famous septimazo is like in Argentina could be called la calle deSan Telmo, but better. You can find any thing.
Its such a good place to go alone, with friends or family that you will want to come back. It has a collection of art and historical pieces that it's always worth a visit. On Sunday it's almost impossible to find parking so some people leave the car in the street and if you like to appreciate more than see, you better choose a different day as on Sundays it's crowded
The building is very nice, the temporal exhibition is wonderful, I spent almost 2 hours and was enough for see everything, you can eat very good inside or outside to the museum, there are a lot of options.
At this museum I've discovered different great artists like her (Katie James) so I recommend to pay attention to the concerts for free that the museum offers in its month schedule.
Main intro descriptions were in English which was nice. Mainly paintings but also some sculptures. Nicely laid out in several rooms. The modern art area upstairs was great
Very nice and well laid out museums with great exhibits, but hardly any English translations, which made it very hard to learn anything about Colombian history.
The place is Magic! You found all the Colombian history through objects that represents the culture and society! Nowadays it has new exhibitions and modern rooms with high technology and entertainment for all ages visitors!
An interesting place to visit. It had detail on all Colombian history and artifacts from all the periods masking up the construct of modern Colombia. Most of the information is in Spanish, so come prepared to translate. Start on the top level and work your way down. Some nice photo opportunity as well.
Excellent place to visit if you are interested in the history of Colombia. A very complete museum. Prices are cheap and they offer guide service to enjoy the visit and to learn Colombian history.
A very interesting place to learn Colombian history. The building itself is also quite fascinating as I think it was converted from an old prison. Quite a few Botero's paintings on top floor. I wish there are more English translations.
